Silicones in cosmetics: everything you need to know

Silicones in Cosmetics: what they are, how to identify them, and why to choose or avoid them. La Saponaria has always chosen not to use them in its formulas. Today, it seems interesting to carify things on these much-debated ingredients that appear to be experiencing a resurgence.

Silicones in Cosmetics: the debate is open, and as often happens nowadays, opinions may be extremely polarized. When reading online, you can find those who love them, consider them necessary, and minimize any criticism of these ingredients, and there are those who have been avoiding them for years and years.

If one approaches the topic without a pre-established opinion and comes across some in-depth analysis aimed at supporting the thesis of love for silicones, one may wonder at the end of the reading why eco-friendly and organic companies have been seeking alternatives to these ingredients for decades. Probably, as Pirandello said, "truth does not exist," and it becomes really complicated for one to form their own opinion.

So, it is time to clarify this topic, trying to move away from the logic of demonization or mindless praise, but maintaining a critical and constructive attitude. Here are the points we will address in this article:

Safe sunscreens: here are the tests performed on the products

When it comes to sunscreens, for us at La Saponaria, safety is the top priority!
That's why every sunscreen that comes out of our laboratory is formulated with great care, in full respect of the skin and the environment. and is subjected to scrupulous tests which analyze its characteristics and performance, establishing its conformity with an unquestionable opinion.

'Osolebio: green and 100% safe formulas

Our Osolebio solar line is made with the best possible ingredients! How do we know? Because, after having thoroughly studied the regulations governing the placing on the market of sunscreens, we have dedicated ourselves to the meticulous research of the most effective sunscreens without however making any compromises regarding the well-being of our skin.

In fact, the sunscreens that are on the market can be of two types: chemical sunscreens and physical sunscreens.

Chemical sunscreens, also called organic filters, are synthetic substances that are able to absorb part of the UV radiation to prevent it from reaching and damaging the epithelial cells. Compared to physical filters, chemical sunscreens have a more comfortable application and are therefore easier to spread on the skin but, on the other hand, precisely because they capture solar energy, they can give rise to irritation, phototoxicity and sensitization.

Physical sunscreens, also known as inorganic filters, are shielding substances that act thanks to their opacity. Their modus operandi is very similar to that of a mirror: the mineral particles reflect UVA and UVB rays and prevent them from coming into contact with the skin and damaging it. Not only that, since they do not absorb solar energy, physical filters are particularly safe for skin health and the risk of incurring sensitization is much lower than chemical filters (to learn more about the characteristics and differences between chemical and physical sunscreens, you can click here).

For these reasons, we have chosen to use only the latest generation physical filters in the formulations of 'Osolebio sunscreens, excluding any petrochemical ingredient. Each recipe also contains precious protective plant extracts and antioxidants which enhance the effect of the product and take care of the skin, keeping it soft and hydrated.
